June Member Spotlight - Dr. Sadia Ali
"Family is a basic unit of any society; and its members share their love, attention, and care to take care of each other holistically. We are fortunate to practice the branch of medicine which derives its core values from concept of family and applies it to taking care of the communities we serve. This nurturing foundation of family medicine was at the forefront during my residency at John Stroger Hospital of Cook County in Chicago, IL." CLICK HERE to read more.
